The lecture was a true success! Let's hear from the participants themselves...
“To unite religions together is very difficult, but is a real challenge. I believe that Happy Science can complete this mission!”

“The lecture was not only filled with spiritual sense, but it was also filled with love to each audience. I was astonished with such powerful energy. In the lecture, Master pointed out all the problems Muslims are carrying. Unfortunately, religion is sometimes used for overpowering humans. However, you can overcome that by encountering Master. That is because we are all one and that source is Master.”
